History

The historically important Dhauli hills are located on the banks of the Daya River, 8 kms south of Bhubaneswar. It is a hill with vast open space adjoining it, and has major edicts of Ashoka engraved on a mass of rock, by the side of the road leading to the summit of the hill. Dhauli hill is presumed to be the area where Kalinga War was fought.

दया नदी

विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[1] ने लेख किया है ...दया नदी (AS, p.426) उड़ीसा की एक नदी है जिसके तट पर धौली (प्राचीन तोसलि) बसी हुई है। दया नदी के तट पर अशोक-मौर्य के समय में होने वाले प्रसिद्ध कलिंग-युद्ध की स्थली थी। कलिंग-युद्ध के पश्चात्त अशोक के हृदय में मानव मात्र के प्रति करुणा का संचार हुआ और उसने धर्म के प्रचार के लिए अपना शेष जीवन समर्पित कर दिया।
